Abstract

In all natural languages, some words collocate with other words to create multi-worded blocks of meaning - the collocations. Since identification of collocations is vital for information retrieval, language learning, psycholinguistics, authorship determination and translation, collocation extraction is an important issue in natural language processing. In this paper we present a method which is designed to improve current statistical methods that generate ranked lists of collocation candidates.
